Whoever trades for Anthony Duclair will be landing one of the NHL’s hidden gems. Of the names being bandied about as potential trade possibilities this spring, there aren’t many more interesting than Duclair. Just 22 years old and a pending restricted free agent on a cheap contract, he could be both a bargain pickup for immediate help and a long-term fit for whoever acquires him. Being able to get both of those aspects is a relative rarity on the trade market.
Remember in September, when fans and media alike were drooling over potential deadline acquisitions from the Vegas Golden Knights? James Neal, David Perron and Jonathan Marchessault were all expected to be made available and would have been hot commodities. It’s dangerous to project those sorts of things in the fall. Vegas is first in the West, meaning there’s no Knights carcass to pick over.
Hockey is a wonderful, cruel game at the highest level. It’ll give in one game or one month or one season and then take the next. We need look no further for an example of this than the Ottawa Senators. Last year, the Sens were a perfectly mediocre team that defied the odds to come within a game of the Stanley Cup final. This year, Ottawa is still a perfectly mediocre team, but are this time just two spots out of last place in the NHL.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
